Bill Summary

The bill prohibits the visual exhibition of smoke, which is the act of knowingly releasing quantities of soot, smoke, or other particulate emissions from a light-duty diesel vehicle in a manner that would cause another driver, a bicyclist, or a pedestrian to feel harassed, annoyed, or alarmed, or that would obstruct or obscure the view of another driver, a bicyclist, or a pedestrian. A person who violates the prohibition commits a class A traffic infraction, punishable by $35 and is subject to 2 points assessed against the person's driver's license.
